Here in Knoxville though, a panic arises from the snow covered ground. Children are swiftly pulled out of school as the sleet begins to descend, four-wheel drive vehicles skid along the interstates, just now learning what certain features were intended for, every grocery store is ransacked for 'must have' survival items such as Pop Tarts and Doritos, whilst the hatches and well and truly battened down for the citizens all around our area.
My poor hubby was released 3 hours early from work (brimming with 'snow day' excitement I might add) only to find himself camping out in standstill traffic for the full 3 hours, in his effort to get home and get snuggled. These were the consequences of maybe 1 1/2 inches of snow on the ground. I'd hate to think what we would look like if the zombie apocalypse ever hit.
Even us hardy Yorkshire lass' know when it's time to hunker down and watch the madness on the TV instead!
